The Flawless: Art’s Tale is a metroidvania action-RPG. Join our young hero, Art, for some epic hack ‘n’ shoot battles, an endearing cast of characters, an unforgettable coming of age story, and a gorgeous hand-drawn art style.

You take control of Art; a twelve year old boy who awakens to find himself alone in a brutal and monochrome world of cats. He is catapulted into an extraordinary adventure where he must save his pet cat ‘Mr Dirty Paws’ and bring colour back to the surreal feline world. Along the way he meets all manner of cats. Some try to use him to do their bidding, some want him dead and use all manner of deception to end his life. Others befriend him and try to help him save Dirty Paws and unleash his Flawless powers. As he is drawn deeper into this strange and complex world it becomes clear that saving Dirty Paws may involve saving the world but is our young hero up to the task!

 

Gameplay:

Our hero Art is a pretty nimble little fella. From the moment he opens his eyes to see the surreal monochrome cat world he can run, jump, dash, and wall jump. His friendly droid FT follows him around as his flying arsenal of ranged weapons. Once Art has a sword he can hack away at enemies and do some cool combos, hack-stab-hack, hack-kick-hack up, you get the picture. Most of the swords Art finds deal more damage to organic enemies whilst FT’s guns do more damage to mechanical enemies making them the perfect duo. In the surreal world of cats there aren’t just organic and mechanical enemies, oh no! There are organic enemies wearing mechanical armour, mechanical baddies with organic internals and brains, machines that wear other living beings as armour. This is a strange and deadly world and Art and FT must work together to overcome the plethora of threats facing them.

As well as the hack ‘n’ shoot lifestyle that Art and FT must adopt they also need to explore the world. Exploration on the isometric world map will uncover new areas, characters to talk to, side quests, and loot. Art can travel to a number of towns where he can help the locals, buy supplies, and do all manner of side activities. Once Art and FT have cleared out the enemies from an area they can explore the area using Art’s  moves; jumping holes, climbing cliffs, dashing over spike pits to uncover hidden treasure and quest items.

Description

Intended for  release on Windows, Linux, Mac, PS4, Nintendo Switch, & XBOX One.

The Last Pilot is a cyberpunk shmup/top-down-shooter hybrid featuring cats that fly planes and shoot big guns whilst trying to save all of feline kind. You take control of Moon, the only living pilot for the cats and the last hope to save their world from an unseen threat even bigger than the dog armies. Walk around giant flying air bases solving puzzles, shooting enemies, and talking to other felines. Then, take to the skies in your flying nuclear fortress, ‘The Weapon’. Blast down hordes of aerial enemies, use your power weapons on gigantic bosses, and bomb land targets with ‘big bombs’. The game is a pre-apocalyptic romp through a brutal world at war blending elements of sh’mups like ‘Sky Force’ with elements of top-down-shooters like ‘Hotline Miami’. All this in a fusion of steampunk and cyberpunk styles with an epic story and interesting characters.
